Mermaid and Friend
I can't believe it's not summer any more. September is tricky that way. But as long as it's going to be warm outside, then we're still thinking about the beach and cooling off in the ocean. 
Illustration Friday, how did you know that it's still mermaid season here?

No, we're not going to cast any nets or harm any sea creatures this week, real or imagined. I just thought I'd try to capture one in colored pencil this week, maybe just to take a quick dip into the coloring craze that seems to have snared the creative world. 
So don't put those pencils and crayons away- It looks like autumn also promises to be a colorful season!

Happy fall, y'all!


  1. Loving your mermaid Michele. ..those lips are awesome. It's still summer here on sunny Rhodes on holiday but no mermaids spotted yet. The colouring craze is brilliant. .I am enjoying being a part of it too. Hugs xx

  2. Thank you, Jane. It was fun to break out the Prismacolors yesterday. Enjoy your vacation! :o)
